It all started 46 years ago when Martin Cooper, an engineer for Motorola had an idea of enabling people to carry phones wherever they go. Now he is called the ‘Father of Mobile’ and was the first person to make a call on a portable phone. However, that phone was certainly a far cry from the stylish and sleek smartphones that we have in this day and age. It was heavy, bulky and had an extremely high price tag attached to it. No one at that time thought that there would be a day when this device would become the center of life for a businessperson to a college-going student.
The technology has evolved massively from that time. Now you can find a lot of devices available at nominal prices. For instance, if we look at the Huawei mobile price, it can be analyzed that it has a lot of value for money in terms of the latest technological aspects.
Moreover, it is a basic rule that if you want to be successful in a business then you should always be aware of the latest trends. You should always know what is working and what is not working. However, not just business, but we think that overall everyone should know what is going on in the mobile phone technology and what are the latest trends we should expect in the future.
Artificial intelligence has certainly penetrated the mobile world. In fact, there are a lot of people out there who talk to their mobile assistants like Siri or Alexa more than their family members. In addition to the users using the artificial intelligence on their phone, the developers are also integrating on the apps.
The artificial intelligence is making those apps much user friendly and more engaging in an amazing way. Voice recognition is heavily integrated into a lot of apps. These are some of the examples by which you can analyze how businesses are making quite a lot of money, all thanks to AI.
There are a lot of businesses and retailers who now rely on mobile payments to provide a fast and secure payment mode for their users. Having said that, making mobile security more stellar is one of the top trends in the cellphone world. Consumers are starting to trust mobile payments more than ever.
In fact, more than 50% of consumers feel that mobile payments are much secure than paying via debit/credit card. Hence, it is expected that businesses all around the world, will invest heavily in the mobile security advancements.
We all know that our mobile phones are our tracking devices. We can get to almost anywhere by just taking help from our smartphones. In fact, there are a lot of apps that ask to access your location and without it, you can’t operate the app. For instance, Lyft or Uber asks for your location to start with the app.
However, a lot of other apps that don’t even require the need of knowing your location, yet asks to access your location. It is due to the reason that they want to send you altered third-party messages based on your location. Geofencing is also a top trend that is being followed by a lot of businesses to market and promote their services.
Augmented reality is a technology which modifies the actual image or picture. The best example to talk about here is the Snapchat filters. The Snapchat filters that were later followed by Instagram are something that has increased the usage of these apps. In fact, it has enhanced the app experience for all the users of such apps.
Moreover, remember the time when everyone was chasing around Pokémons in the Pokémon Go. It was all about the different experience that the users were getting out of the game due to the augmented reality integration. It is expected that more apps will be integrating augmented reality to enhance the user experience.
Ride-hailing apps are getting more transformation. You can even get a lot of information on mass transits that include busses, trains, planes, etc. The interface of these apps is being changed in a way that helps to increase the convenience for the users of the apps. Moreover, apps are also being built for unique transportation modes like Lime bikes and Bird.
Synchronization with wearables
Wearables including health rate monitors, smartwatches, fitness trackers, glasses, etc. can be easily synced with your smartphones. You can easily get every metric on your phone whether it be the number of steps you have taken or the heart rate. Moreover, developers are now working on integrating more metrics to appear on the smartphones that will provide the users with detailed information.
There was once a time when the developers could only use one platform whether it be iOS or android on which they could develop their app. Well, it is not the case anymore. The developers are able to develop apps on multiple platforms due to cross-platform development. It also helps in reducing the cost for the app development as compared to creating it on two different platforms.
